Furs and Frontiers in the Far North

The fur trade is a fascinating piece of American history. Award winning author John Bockstoce provides a comprehensive view of the maritime and arctic portion of the trade in his new book Furs and Frontiers in the Far NorthFurs and Frontiers in the Far North . The book is published by Yale University Press.

Bockstoce himself is a fascinating guy. An independent scholar, his research has focused heavily on the arctic and his process is akin to the 19th-century explorers that spur him along. One of the many interesting characters I met while working at the Whaling Museum.
